Hola muchachen, co'ta vos? Noi tamo trancorriendo barbaro, mucha playi, mucho paseo, mucho noni! Esto que pareciera no tener sentido es lo que los lugareños llaman Papiamento, lenguaje oficial de Aruba desde el 2007. Para ser francos, no es Papiamento lo del primer párrafo sino una adaptación nuestra, pero créanme que suena muy parecido a eso. No …

Big rocks, big views and a holy grotto

A travel blog entry by kouatly


We made today an Aruba exploration day. After sleeping in Omar made hash browns (from scratch) and eggs for breakfast. We then headed out to hike on and around special rock formations called Casibari rock. This is also known as the Stonehenge of Aruba, but it is totally natural.

After a 15 minute ride or so we found the rocks and jumped out into the 90 degree heat to start our hike. ...

Roughing it in Aruba

... for our needs. We ended up with a small Kia car but it suited us for the 4 days we were there. The car was around $200 for 5 days!

Upon our arrival at Coral Reef Beach Aruba, we were greeted by Julie, who upgraded us to their "treehouse" from the 2 rooms that we initially booked at no extra charge. The treehouse has an interesting lay out. Essentially, it has two king size ...

Sea day #2

A travel blog entry by scrapqwn


Today is another sea day and the weather today is perfect! Which means it was a deck day for me! The day was broken up by a Crab Feast at the Crab Shack/Bayou Cafe. They only do 2 of these per cruise and you have to book in advance so off we went for the feast! They put these huge aprons on you while you eat! I had the " mud pot boil" sounds awful ...

Montezuma's Revenge? - At Sea Day #4

A travel blog entry by jaynjill.jaunts

Well, overnight I got whatever it was Jay had (or something different, who knows?). So, it's probably best for us that we did end up having to skip Aruba, so Jay can continue to recuperate and I can get through a day without having to do anything at all.

We ended up having the nurse come by the room to see what she could do. She ended up with ...

    Simple and nice place to stay, very close to the beach and cheaper than other hotel options in the area. I really enjoyed the stay.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Brickell Bay Beach Club & Spa Palm/Eagle Beach

    Close to everything!


    Our first visit November 24,2004 to December 4, 2004. Very clean, excellent staff. No request ignored. Nice average room, no frills, but excellent price. We were able to walk to beach in 3 minutes, 5 restaurants in 2 minutes, and many more within 5 minute walk. Multiple casinos within 5 to 10 minute walk. Rental car booth outside the door. Pool excellent, clean and always empty. Nightly entertainment in plaza next door. We could lay by pool in evening in dark and listen to music. If you want high cost frills, stay at Hyatt, but for a nice, clean room and ease to travel entire island very easily, we highly recommend this budget hotel. There is so much to do, that we really only showered, napped, and slept at night in hotel. We snorkled 6-8 hours a day, played slots at night, and ate very nice meals. Lovely time!

    An English view on hotel and Aruba


    Pros: Very warm and friendly. Really good air-conditioning. Maid Service very good. Shower is good. Staff very friendly, helpful and available 24/7. Right next to MacDonalds/Wendys/Chinese restaraunt/couple of casinos and a load of Steakhouse-type restaurants. ATM straight opposite front entrance. 2/3min walk to beach. Beach Towels provided. Bus Stop right outside hotel on main road.

    Great place to stay


    Just come back from Aruba.Hotel was great.Not as luxurious as the ones across the road, but very clean, and exceptional every day cleaning provided.Reception staff friendly.In the middle of renovating, but did not disrupt stay.Would definitely recommend and return.

    More pluses than minuses


    Stayed at the Brickell from 03/20-03/27/04.

    A Basic Hotel


    My husband and I booked a last minute trip to Aruba and stayed at Brickell Bay April 10 to 17/04. We found it to be a basic, clean hotel with few amenities, although we are not complaining because you get what you pay for. Our room was extremely clean, beach towels and beach lounge chairs were always available, the front desk staff was helpful.

    Quality and service , perfact GT


    This has been my fourth trip to aruba. I have stayed at the Windam , the Hyatt and the holiday inn. Brickell Bay Beach Club was in my awsome. Comparing it to the other hotels I stayed in, oviously the others were closer to the beach and the pools were larger but Brickell bay was one third the price and in terms of quality and service is was just as good as two of the others and even better then one but I will not say which. The pool bar was awsome, increadablely good looking girls and the drinks were half the price then the hyatt and twice as strong. The hyatts bar rips you off!!! here they get strong drinks and sometimes will hook you up with free ones!!!! usually a few times a day. I alway could get towels and we needed a extra cot and it was in my room with in 5 mins after I called. Every one was so increadabley nice, you almost feel as if they all know your name by the end of the week. We got there and check in and got up graded to a better roome with a better view for the same price. Most help full one third the price , drinks were great , grils were hot, I will be staying there againg and again, >>>>>much better then the hyatt

    Worked for us


    This was a very last minute trip for my husband and I over the New Year's Holiday (1/31-1/6). BBBC was THE only place with availability and a "Supersaver" rate at that. Maybe our expectations were not as high as others but we found the facility to be just fine. Our room was clean, spacious and made up daily, the air conditioner worked fine (which couldn't be said of our friends who stayed across the street with an inch of H2O from theirs) and the Staff, from Eric, Felix & Larry at the front desk, Robbie at the Pool Bar, to the maids couldn't have been more accommodating or friendly and helpful. Did we have to ask for wash clothes a couple of times (no different than Cancun or St.

    One Happy Island, One Sad Resort


    Just returned on 1/4/04 and was very dissatisfied with the hotel.

    Missing locks, hair dryer, iron, no towels, bugs in coffee maker and EXCELLENT staff. I travel to Aruba 3 times yearly and this was terrible. The main reason I would return would be for the friends I made with the staff. The week I was there the owners were there and had I known this I would have said something. This is an inland hotel with walls surrounding the pool which is what I expected but I couldn't get a refrigerator or a cot to save my life. This was my new years eve choice to stay because it was the only hotel available on the entire island. Surprise, surprise!

    Extreme make-over needed


    We stayed at the Brickell October 2003. I have to start by saying that the staff is very very friendly but the hotel is not what it seems on the internet. We had a dirty room , the airco did not work well so everthing was very wet. Water was dripping from the walls. After 1 day all our clothes in our suitcases were wet. There is no restaurant so it is like sitting in the lobby to have breakfast with the TV screaming loudly. The elevator is the worst, dirty with a terrible smell. The pool is very nice but surrounded by walls. The store was never open. We only used the hotel to sleep and to take a shower. During the day we stayed at the other hotels to swim or have lunch and dinner. The Brickell needs an "extreme make-over" asap.

    Good Experience


    Our experience at the Brickell Bay was good. The wait staff was pleasant, and the rooms were perfect for travelers that enjoy spending their time on the beach and soaking up the Aruba sun. Beach/pool towels were also always available. The hotel is located about a block away from the beach, and is a 10 minute drive from Oranjestad. Overall, the Brickell Bay was definitely nothing to complain about.
